A rabid fox was shot and killed by a resident of Hill Street in Northbridge after the animal attacked his son over the weekend. The fox went after 18 year old Nick Stanley. He pushed a caulking gun into the animals mouth. The fox then ran and chased Dana Stanley's wife. He called 911 and told authorities what was going on and that he would be firing a gun in a residential area. The animal charged at Stanley and he fired and killed the fox. It was determined that the animal had rabies.
